Big league Wall Street investors have already anticipated the trend....and have placed their bets! Rechargeable batteries and the electric motor will REPLACE the internal combustion engine.
Waiting in the wings....with coal-fired and fossil fueled power plants ...are the profit- eager electric companies. Plugging in your Tesla, Prius, or Chevy Volt might just feel joyously painless! .....until you get your electric bill!
That electricity is not free! And, though you have endowed yourself with your own personal pair of angel wings....for saving the planet with your electric car, ...your tiny carbon-footprint will simply be replaced...by a VERY LARGE footprint, produced by your friendly electric company.
It's not free. And it's not clean! Combustion and greenhouse gases will be produced at record levels, and crushing demand for electric power will prompt lesser liability , oversight , and regulation of radiation filled nuclear power plants.
But it's okay. Just keep smiling that smug oblivious contentful grin as your clean-green electrical mind meanders while you plug-in that Prius! Though you have not donned a pair of tights and a cape....you HAVE helped save the planet! Or have you? Before you leap off a building and enter into cosmic flight...be sure to bring a parachute, you little superman ya!
